CANDID COMMENTS -- by W.S.StevenB


,Premier John- & His"Comrades"
Whenever Premier Patrick John add-.
esses the people of Dominica, he
,alls them 'comrades'. WIhatever his
comradeship- means is'not mine to'
Lefine. What I do know is that a com-
lade is a very close companion or in-
;imate associate, It, therefore,stands
;o reason that your comrade knows your
movements and whereabouts.
Patrick John controls DBS radio,
Jhich he can use to: tell his 'comrades'
;hat he' is going to Barbados to see
'est Cricket. It should certainly ndo
e left to Barbados radio to tell6the
peoplee of Dominica, his 'comrades',
;hat their Premier John is out of the,
tate enjoying cricket even despite
;he tragic condition of Dominica at
;he moment,
But what is more preposterous is
;hat after Premier John so ably de-
iounced the omission of Irving Shil-
iingford from the West Indies side,
ie turns up at the pavillion in Bar-
)ados -thus visibly condoning the
insult and discrimination-to all his
